National Walking Day

Posted at 1:26 PM, Apr 05, 2017

Today, countless Erie and Niagara county residents and others throughout the country will take a step towards being healthy for good and walk to commemorate the American Heart Association's National Walking Day. 

The American Heart Association will kick-off the month-long campaign to encourage people to move more by increasing their physical activity. 

The campaign is broken down into weekly themes. 

Week 1 focuses on walking and the basic tools you need to get started. 

Walking is one of the safest, least expensive, and most sustainable forms of exercise. 

Week 2 and 3 focuses on recreational sports and outdoor  activities the whole family can do together and week 4 focuses on mindful movement and reducing stress by doing activities such as yoga, Pilates and tail chi.
